Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) regulate gene expression at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. Many ncRNAs have been identified in the past decade, including small ncRNAs, such as microRNAs (miRNAs), and long ncRNAs (lncRNAs). These novel molecules have important roles in a wide range of biological processes such as the regulation of reproduction and sex determination. Due to their ability to regulate specific genes or entire gene families, these molecules have the potential for uses… CONTINUE READING
